Why booking a mid-year corporate reset is the best thing you can do for your company right now
Don’t wait until the end of the year to get your management team together and evaluate your goals. Just like an oil check-up, a mid-year corporate reset is essential to a well-oiled corporate machine that’s on the road to hitting its targets. By taking a couple of days to meet in person and review the roadmap, you can ensure that everyone is on the same page and that nothing has been overlooked. With this review, you can also identify any areas that need adjusting in order to get back on track and hit the end goal.
Here are our top tips and tricks for a winning corporate reset
1. Start now
Whether you convened at the beginning of the year, last year or even never, the middle of the year is, paradoxically, a great place to start. It’s the perfect time to take a hard look at what’s working, what’s not and refocus and prioritise accordingly.
2. Say no
Say no to demands on your time and energy — your two most valuable and limited resources — that have no ROI. A mid-year review shows you what is worth your time and what you can delegate, outsource and toss out. Let the team reach their full potential by identifying and investing in their highest-value tasks.
3. Say no to mid-year-meh
After the initial energetic few months of the year, there can be a lull. The team may start to work in silos, the motivation may slump and things can derail if you aren’t careful. Giving yourself the time to reflect with a corporate reset curtails aimless drifting and helps the whole team realign and re-energise.
You will come out with a refreshed focus on your goals and game plan for success.
4. Say yes to metrics (the right ones)
Metrics are great if they are giving you the answers you need. If not, it’s time to reset them and identify any obstacles that are preventing you from reaching your goals. Mid-year is also the ideal time to check your gap-to-goals or, in other words, what still needs to be achieved to reach targets.
5. What’s new?
A mid-year reset also gives you the chance to incorporate new findings, ideas, strategies etc., allowing you to stay current and capitalise on opportunities.
6. Book at a stellar venue!
